Asakusa is the town that best represents the traditional Tokyo culture. The symbol of the town is the historic Sensoji Temple, unmistakable for the red-schemed Kaminarimon Gate and the temple. It is the oldest temple in Tokyo, having a history since the year 628 AD.
People tend to focus on the impressive Kaminarimon Gate and the main temple, but another attractive point is the road in between these two, which is Nakamise Shopping Street. Many souvenir shops and other shops selling traditional foods are packed within this street, making it possible for you to experience more of the Tokyo culture.
Asakusa is also famous for traditional Japanese food such as Tempura and Unagi, and there are lots of Izakaya where you can enjoy trying out foods and drinks.
